Ensuring your items being shipped aren’t damaged in transit can lift a great deal of stress from the sender. Here are some tips to make sure that all of the goods you ship as far as overseas or as close as in-state are handled with care.
The best tip is closing space for movement for the object. If it has less wiggle room to get damaged, then the item will have a higher success rate of traveling safely. You can use soft tissue and wrapping depending on the material of the item. If it’s already a delicate object, you want to be extra careful on this end. It will heavily improve that process as a whole.
Getting the right packaging
Every item will need the right packaging to accompany it as well. Simply putting in newspaper or filler materials will increase the likelihood of damage. Try your best to avoid this by getting actual packing materials to fill the box in with. With these, you’ll have the right level of firmness or softness as well.
Closing flat on all sides
If your box cannot close flat on all sides, this leaves room for the material to move around. You want to avoid this as much as possible because an uneven box will damage its surroundings as well. In short, lowering the variables for travel will give your box the best chances of staying undamaged.
It’s common for misshapen items to have strange packaging, which is why getting a custom box made is the best route.
